As documented by Gartner Research, superior forecast performance
has a dramatic impact on supply chain excellence and profitability. In a recent study, companies that had higher levels of demand
visibility and forecast accuracy reduced supply chain costs and
increased perfect-order percentages. Best-in-Class companies with
superior demand-forecast accuracy also have 15 percent less
inventory, 17 percent better perfect-order ratings, and 35 percent
shorter cash-to-cash cycle times than their peers.

demand and inventory requirements instantly in the format you
choose for a variety of corporate planning processes. Problems are identified faster to help make better use of
company resources and to balance resources including inventories.

reduces carrying cost but also drives optimum stocking levels
across the supply chain reducing costs associated with
rescheduling shipments and production expediting.

required supply items in inventory, stock-outs and backorders
are reduced leading to fewer lost sales and increased market
share. Best-in-Class companies gain increased sales and
superior customer service with better forecasts.
- Leverage existing IT assets.
SmartSpreadSheet Forecast leverages your existing company
databases and systems and seamlessly integrates with your supply
chain and ERP systems. It connects directly to SQL Server, DB2,
Oracle and other host database systems.
